Uninstallation of Nvidia drivers / software
 
Hi, I installed the Nvidia driver and opengl 32bit compatibility libraries for my amd64 box. I plan on not using the nvidia driver when I can get the opensource driver to display the native resolution of my monitor. I'm wondering how I can find out what Nvidia put on my machine, where its located, and how to uninstall it. Hopefully nvidia has tools for this?

Re: Uninstallation of Nvidia drivers / software
 
If you installed the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver using the official .run package, then you can ran `nvidia-installer` with the --uninstall to uninstall the driver. If you used a third-party driver package, please consult the documentation provided by the package distribution/maintainer.

Re: Uninstallation of Nvidia drivers / software
 
Hi,
I have a problem uninstalling with the "NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9746-pkg2.run" script. After using option "--uninstall" I get a message saying something like "a clean uninstall was not possible..".
After rebooting I get around 10000 or more messages saying "nvidia: Unknown symbol". Dmesg is flooded with it so I cannot say at which point it starts:
...

When I do
Core2Duo:~ # modprobe nvidia
FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/2.6.18.2-34-default/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

Dmesg is afterwards again flooded with messages saying the above "unknown symbol". What do I have to do to fix this?
Thanks & Regards, Leo
